2022 may seem a long way off, but that hasn’t stopped Qatar 2022 from releasing the concept designs for its proposed stadiums, should the country win the bid to host the FIFA World Cup at this time. Designed by Albert Speer & Partner GmbH, the stadiums display striking and dramatic facades and incorporate state-of-the-art technology in an effort to stand out from the crowd bidding to host this popular tournament.

Unveiled at ‘Sport Accord’, the world’s largest sporting convention in Dubai, designs for the five stadiums each boast a different distinctive feature, be it a specially designed membrane to present current match footage, updates and tournament information, or an entrance linked to the Qatar-Bahrain Friendship Bridge,
which is set to be the longest free-standing bridge in the world. Each one has either been inspired by a specific element of Qatari culture and tradition, or acts as a symbol to the rest of the world of the relationship that Qatar shares with the competing nations.

The structures are set to exploit the extreme environmental conditions in Qatar by channelling the sunlight to generate a large portion of the stadiums power using solar technology. Using innovative climate control technology, temperatures within the stadiums are set to stay below 28°C, despite the nation's fierce heat, making the 2022 FIFA World Cup the first ever cooled outdoor sporting event. To ensure a lasting impression, Qatar 2022 have proposed that post-World Cup, many modular components of the stadiums no longer needed will be dismantled and shipped to other countries in order to promote football development.
